Since December 24th 2013, we've had a fun year on the NMS blog totally chock full of 148 blog posts, and over 13,000 views of our world of car auto crossing, car repairs, car upgrades, car selling, car buying, and pretty much a whole bunch of other car stuff. Along the way we've learned a lot, competed, won, lost, and have been able to do so thanks to a lot of great family and friends who do it for fun and professionals who do it for money because they are in business! Without meaning to leave anyone out, we'd like to thank the following:PANIC MOTORSPORTS in Columbia SC, for tons of expert Miata service, maintenance, parts, advice, magnetic car numbers, and etc. In addition to their new Dyno, and all their world class Miata experience and friendly help every time we've asked, they even installed the new sway bar on the FIAT that we couldn't do ourselves!
FIAT 500 USA Forum at FIAT 500 USA FORUM for tons of friends that have assisted with advice and encouragement on the Italian side.
